The FIA has offered to remove the restrictions on exhaust-blown diffusers from the German Grand Prix.
A statement released on Saturday afternoon said: “The measures which were communicated to the teams this morning by the FIA Technical Department stand for the rest of the weekend.
“During Saturday morning?óÔéĽÔäós Extraordinary Technical Working Group meeting, the members discussed the viability of returning to the pre-Silverstone set-ups and strategies.
“If the teams are in unanimous agreement, the FIA is prepared to adopt this arrangement until the end of the current season.”
The British Grand Prix weekend has been marred by arguments over new restrictions on exhaust-blown diffusers.
The FIA tried to restrict teams to using no more than 10% of the throttle, when the driver is off-throttle, to blow air into the diffuser.
Charlie Whiting had allowed teams some exceptions from the rules which were then rescinded this morning. Red Bull’s Christian Horner said the new limits put them at a “disadvantage”.
